The first order of business will be board elections. Volunteering at the board level is a great way to give back to our profession;

if you’re interested in one of these challenging and rewarding leadership roles we’d love to hear from you!

This year we have three board positions coming open for the 2021 term:

  • President-elect
  • VP Professional Development
  • VP Member Services

For more information on the specifics of each role, please see the positions descriptions here.

If you are not familiar with our chapter elections process, here is a refresher:

Elections are held at the AGM, this year this it is online on September 15, 2020. The nominating committee is made up of past chapter presidents and is chaired by the immediate past president. We accept nominations for open positions until one week prior to the AGM; this year that is September 8. This gives the nominating committee enough time to prepare the list of candidates. All nominations should be communicated to Jonathan Moore-Wright (Immediate Past President) at pastpresident@pminorthsask.com. Nominations should include a brief bio as well as a statement of your experience related to the position.

Candidate information will be published to the membership one week prior to the AGM.  At his/her discretion, the president will interview all candidates prior to the election.

The new board appointments take effect January 1, and new board members go through transition and training over the fall.

In addition to elections we will be proposing a number of changes to our chapter bylaws at this AGM based upon changing our fiscal year from July 1 to June 30 to January 1 to December 31.

Please see the proposed changes here. At the AGM we will be asking for a vote to approve the proposed changes.
